As always, a lot has happened on the golf course this week, but a hot topic of discussion in the pro shop seems to be the wellbeing of our family of swans... So here is a picture of mother and child seemingly doing very well...

Also, well done to Anna Dougal on winning Sunday's ladies medal using her shiny new Callaway clubs that were fitted for her at the Callaway fitting centre. Anna, clubs fitted, delivered at a quick pace and I am happy to say that once again we beat all discount shop pricing.
Find the fairway every time
Now doesn't that sound nice! Prior to the Irish Open one commentator remarked: "Anyone who's not driving the ball well this week can forget about winning." How true. On some courses you may be able to get away with it but not at Royal County Down, especially when it's wet and windy.
Yes, holing putts is important and being able to drive the ball a mile will help, but isn't the game a lot easier when you're playing the game from the fairways?
Our advice is to try not to let a narrow fairway faze you. So you commit fully to the shot, pick a spot in front of your ball that sits directly on your line. You should aim to force the head of your club over this spot after impact to ensure that you release it powerfully towards the target.
